Let's Keep the Rain Dance

China is playing weather maker.

Am I surprised?

No.

Truth be told, they've been playing rainmaker, officially, since 2004.

Gasp!

All our precious cats and dogs have suffered from bad pet food, the tootpaste was tainted, fish is being banned from China and now they want to manipulate the weather.

My best advice to Zhang Qiang, the top weather-modification bureaucrat in Beijing, just don't forget what happened to the former director of China's State Food and Drug Administration.

In the meantime, China, the geographic origin of bird flu, is rejecting our poultry citing contamination.

Non-tainted food for thought: it's not necessarily what they are telling us as much as what they are not telling us; so just how far can their storm making missiles reach?

Some things are better left to the Maker.
